Instead of a bio-note,

the randomness of the creative process; thinking out loud

Most of my days I make a list with ideas I want to work with.

Most of the times I end up doing something completely different because it gives me a weird thrill, like cheating on myself or skipping school.

why do i have to write about what i made?  making it should be enough

 politics: search for  the magpie parliaments

It looks like a piece of jewelry but how do you even wear it?

Why do we like old things?

They are made by fellow humans who don’t exist anymore but their stuff do.

The “I don’t want to destroy it” paradox: the moment that an impulse threatens a pre-planned creation with no going back. 

how can i dress small bursts of violence and frustration into a playful style?
